Once again, President Biden is in the hot seat after awkwardly joking about running over a report when asked by a reporter about the Israel-Palestine conflict.
On Tuesday, Joe Biden made a rare public appearance at Ford’s Rouge factory in Dearborn, Michigan, to test drive the new F-150 Lightning electric truck from Ford.
The President’s joyride was interrupted when a reporter asked about the ongoing Middle East crisis.
“Mr. President, can I ask you a quick question on Israel before you drive away since it’s so important?” the reporter asked.
“No, you can’t,” Biden responded. “Not unless you get in front of the car as I step on it.”
A few reporters chuckled nervously in response to the bizarre response from the commander-in-chief.
“I’m only teasing,” Biden added, seemingly annoyed.
During the low-energy appearance to Ford’s Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, Biden slipped up by claiming the truck could pick up from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about 4.4 seconds, information the Ford PR informed him the company had not yet released.
“This sucker’s quick,” Biden told reporters.

Reports from The Gateway Pundit highlighted that the model Joe Biden was “driving” had two steering wheels. In the slowed-down version of the video, it appears that the individual beside President Biden may be controlling another wheel.
What seems like an attempt to promote Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan, which includes $174 billion for electric-vehicle development, embarrassingly ended up as a failed stunt.
Two things were taken away after reviewing the President’s appearance. President Biden’s handlers are bent on avoiding any questions regarding the current issues in Israel, and concerns about President Biden’s mental capacity are indeed justified.
What would the headlines read if Donald Trump or any Republican elected officials acted with this kind of behavior?
